Full Description

A building was noted by WCAS during a 2011 DBA and walkover survey in advance of a woodland creation scheme. Located around 150m W of the modern sheepfold and 6m S of the road, the remains of a rectilinear stone and turf house lay under heather, bracken, grass and rush. It measured 13m NE-SW by 5.5m over walls spread to 0.8m
and survived up to 0.6m high. There was a possible entrance in SE side measuring 0.6m wide and a curving wall to SE side could be the remains of a porch.
70m to the east was also the grass-covered fragment of a degraded turf bank, spread to 0.8m wide and up
to 0.3m high, running below a modern post/wire fence. It was the remains of a structure of unknown use predating the sheep fank and area of rig and furrow. <1>
